I now officially want to punch myself

Listen, you know I’m all about the deal; the cheaper the better, natch.

Which is why I have to tell you that I had a terrible moment of cognitive dissonance a minute ago. I saw these skybar wine chill drops and of course thought, “$50 for little thingies to chill your wine??!”

… but on the heels of that I thought, “Whoa. Those are really cool.”

And that’s when I had to put my head down on my desk and take a deep breath and remind myself just because they can make stuff like that, doesn’t mean I have to like it. Much.

Okay, off to try to smack the bourgeois off myself….


  1. What??? You’re too good to drop an ice cube in your wine like the rest of us heathens?

    (yes, secretly, I went OOOO!, too. And then smacked myself)

  2. Those would be great for the kids’ food. “Put it in the freezer!” “No, I’ll just zap it with my cold stick.” They need to put it in One Step Ahead.

  3. Yeah, I like Carrie’s idea!

  4. When I was a kid, we used to have plastic ice cubes – they would work for something like this too – and for a LOT less than $50.
